Our Take on Your Take

When Ron Mayland‘s aerial photograph of the flooding in Iowa was sent to You Witness last Friday, I was impressed with the quality and the access, especially as we had seen very few pictures from the affected areas from any of the wires. The picture and Ron’s contact details were passed along to our regional chief photographer, who negotiated an arrangement to secure this and additional images for use on the Reuters Pictures Wire service. Ron has continued to provide quality aerial images to Reuters throughout the week.

Chris Maddox captured both the pig and revelers enjoying ex-Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters’ concert in his two images highlighted in this week’s selection.
